Some fcuk up made by the GAA on the tickets for this game and the hurling replay
Why could they not fulfil the club orders first and then send the left overs out via Supervalu, Centra, ONeills etc this week??

Kileeshil have blown the division 3 race wide open defeating eskra today
Eskra and clogher now joint on points at the top
Clogher have beaten eskra already in first game of season
Does it come down to head to head or score difference if they finish level?

Anybody apply and get the agricultural relief lately?
Is it hard to get if you have a DARD business ID but aren’t doing a pile of farming?

Also- form on BT Openreach website to be filled in if you want landline or broadband
Form below

https://www.formwize.com/run/survey3.cfm?idx=505d0408080c0a09


BT will leave you out ducting and a roll of cable- there may be a small charge for the duct/cable but not much
If there are poles to be put it there isn’t a change for that and there is no charge for actual connection

What way do I go about getting Septic tank, electric, water applications sent in? I can't find much online about it.  Are there any other applications I could submit while waiting for planning to come back?

Plenty you could be getting on with as prices are rising and electric connection may take months:

Electric- fill out form which can be downloaded from NIE website. They will come back with price
Water- form on niwater.com website again to be downloaded and filled out. Will revert with price
Septic tank- consent to discharge must be obtained from DAERA. Application is £273. Whoever you are getting your septic tank from can fill this in for you. Viltra in Newry will do it free. Push for the lower % effluent quality if you can as it’s cheaper a tank

There’s a closed group on Facebook which is useful for anyone building: ‘Self Build and Rennovations Ireland’

I'm buying a new build, but a cursory inspection by the mortgage provider's surveyor has said that there's a tree within 3m of the house, it is too risky, and mortgage unlikely to be granted without guarantee from the builder and report on the tree.

We would ideally like to get rid of the tree, but it is currently under a tree protection order. 

My question is whether anyone has experience of getting rid of trees, and whether that is inherently more risky to remove it than letting the tree continue as is if the tree report says it is healthy.

House is already built.

Cut it down if it’s causing you bother.
That was a while night of wind 🤐
Once it’s gone it’s gone
Get your own tree report done if you want extra cover to say it’s dead/diseased if you’re worried about comeback

Anybody know who has the TV rights for super 8s and what’s the split between RTE/Sky games?

Any way of side loading the RTE player App onto a iOS device registered in NI?
Only international version available in App Store it seems?

So - This is a summary of RTE, The National Broadcaster's performance yesterday.
1 - Put soccer on HD on RTE1 and a crucial hurling championship match on non HD.
2 - Went to a break for news and a lengthy series of advertisements  at half time during the Connaught final
3 - Blocked the signal from users in the north for The Sunday Game last night.

Not a great performance overall.  No wonder we need SKY.

Sky is the problem here. It was sky who blocked the programme
The hurling was on HD yesterday
Lesson: don’t rely on Sky for your GAA coverage on RTE. If you can, get an aerial and Saorview box or enabled TV. Aerial set up for about £150/200 and there will be no ‘blue screening’ of GAA and champions league

I think there are parts where sky is the only way to access RTE. No saorview signal.

Yes Sky is only option for some to get RTE
If so go for a sky box registered to an address in the South if u can
No blue screening then

If you got a freeview combi box and connected it to the SKY dish, which is already aligned, surely you would get RTE?

Not familiar with they combi box set up
With Sky it’s not the dish which is aligned, it’s the viewing card plus your box

I live in the north. I watched the hurling on RTE 1 HD. Not sure why there was soccer on yours.
I was able to watch the Sunday Game.

I think the problem only occurred if you access RTE through the likes of Sky.

I didn’t think there was an RTE1 HD. Don’t think there is on Sky anyway
I access RTE through the aerial. There definitely is RTE 1 HD.

You could both be right.
RTÉ Saorview from Clermont Cairn is indeed HD. GFA RTÉ from NI transmitters is not HD, as far as I know.

That’s correct
